The Philippine Nurses Association in America (PNAA)-New York Chapter will hold a Balik- Turo lecture program on the recent trends in nursing education and practice on February 1 at the Claire Isabel McGill Luce Auditorium.

Highlighting the event is the talk by accomplished nurse theorist Dr. Joyce Fitzpatrick on “Nursing Leadership”.

She is a member of the American National League of Nursing and serves as the editor of its official publication Nursing Education Perspectives and two other nursing journals: Applied Nursing Research and Archives of Psychiatric Nursing.

Themed “Enhancing One’s Nursing Practice Through the Lens of the Experts,” the program is co-sponsored by 2007 Outstanding Sillimanian for Entrepreneurship Mrs. Olivia V. Yanson. Mrs. Yanson is a member of the Silliman University College of Nursing Alumni Association (BSN 1956), which organizes the program together with the College of Nursing. She and her family are among the University’s generous benefactors, with the building, Olivia Villaflores-Yanson Hall, forming part of their recent donations.
